A New Model for the Next 100
Thompson Webb opened Webb School in 1922 to provide boys with an education focused on honor, moral courage and leadership. His boys’ school stood alone and thrived for nearly 60 years. In 1981, the Webb community came together to found the Vivian Webb School, creating a unique coordinate structure of two schools on one campus and a place for girls to develop in their own right. It has also been a great success. These successes, coupled with the founding of the Alf Museum and its accreditation in 1998, have led to our national reputation as a center for educational innovation.
Over the last four decades, Webb School of California and the Vivian Webb School have grown closer and stronger, building a legacy of shared experiences and traditions. This has been a natural evolution spurred in part by ongoing innovations in academics and co-curricular activities designed to spark unbounded thinking.
As we look ahead to The Next 100, Webb is exploring a shift in its school model for the next century.
Here is a link to our March 17 community letter about announcing the opening of our inquiry period on the topic.
If you missed our March 24 webinars on the evolution of Webb’s coordinate model, please contact Lexus Beaman ’08 at firstname.lastname@example.org for a link to the recording.
Also, members of the Webb community will receive a survey in the next few days asking for more detailed input on the topic.
